CEO, Oracle

Ellison has been in charge of database giant Oracle since he founded the company in 1977. Since then, Oracle has grown into a multi-million dollar company, knocking out (Informix) or absorbing (Sun Microsystems) its competition. Ellison also races sailboats -- his team won the America’s Cup in 2010 -- as well as flying planes. He also plays tennis and guitar.
